Roy Hodgson has challenged Graham Dorrans to replace the injured Zoltan Gera in the side, but it seems likely he will play two up front having frequently stated he wants to see Shane Long and Peter Odemwingie paired together.

Wigan don’t have any more injury problems but are still without Chris Kirkland. Ben Watson could come back into the side, possibly for David Jones.
